The current prospective observational study evaluated the impact of baseline neurocognitive impairment on future viral load suppression among antiretroviral medication naive persons newly diagnosed with HIV infection. We used the Montreal Cognitive Assessment (MoCA) score less than 26, to identify patients with neurocognitive deficits. Of the 138 patients enrolled; virologic suppression was seen in 61% of the participants, while 72% of the participants had a MoCA score less than 26 at baseline. Variables significantly associated with low MoCA score included higher age (p < 0...

This study compared sexually transmitted infection (STI)-associated risks between young Black cisgender men who have sex with men (YBMSM) and young Black transwomen who have sex with men (YBTWSM). Comparisons pertained to: (1) prevalence of infections; (2) sexual risk; (3) partner-related risks; and (4) socioeconomic marginalization. YBMSM (n = 577) and YBTWSM (n = 32) were recruited from an STI clinic in the USA. Volunteers completed a computer-assisted self-interview and medical records were abstracted for STI/HIV information...

Using the approach of a Vandermonde determinant to the power Γ=Q^{2}/k_{B}T expansion on monomial functions, a way to find the excess energy U_{exc} of the two-dimensional one-component plasma (2DOCP) on hard and soft disks (or a Dyson gas) for odd values of Γ/2 is provided. At Γ=2, the present study not only corroborates the result for the particle-particle energy contribution of the Dyson gas found by Shakirov [Shakirov, Phys. Lett. A 375, 984 (2011)10.1016/j.physleta.2011.01.004] by using an alternative approach, but also provides the exact N-finite expansion of the excess energy of the 2DOCP on the hard disk...

The aim of this work was to evaluate the performance of a UASB-septic tank as a decentralized treatment of high strength municipal wastewater, under two different HRTs (48 and 72h). Thus, a lab scale (44.85L) UASB-septic tank constituted by three compartments was operated under HRT 72h and 48h. Removal efficiencies of total COD, BOD5 and suspended solids ranged from 60% to 80% for the first two parameters and from 70% to 90% for the last one. According to the statistical analysis, it was established that decreasing HRT from 72h to 48h did not affect the performance of the UASB-septic tank; therefore, the latter HRT is recommended to be used for operation...

We report the results of a first experimental search for lepton number violation by four units in the neutrinoless quadruple-β decay of ^{150}Nd using a total exposure of 0.19 kg yr recorded with the NEMO-3 detector at the Modane Underground Laboratory. We find no evidence of this decay and set lower limits on the half-life in the range T_{1/2}>(1.1-3.2)×10^{21}  yr at the 90% C.L., depending on the model used for the kinematic distributions of the emitted electrons.

The emerging polarization states from a linearly polarized monochromatic light passing through a rotating linear quarter-wave plate have been characterized as the intersection curve of a cylinder and the Poincaré sphere. But in the cases where the input polarization states are in general elliptical or circular and pass through a rotating linear retarder, the emerging polarization states produce trajectories that do not correspond to the intersection of a sphere with one cylinder. Hence, in this work, we present a full characterization of the trajectories on the Poincaré sphere for monochromatic input beams with an arbitrary polarization state passing through a rotating linear retarder as the intersection curve of the Poincaré sphere with a cone...

Several built-up indices have been proposed in the literature in order to extract the urban sprawl from satellite data. Given their relative simplicity and easy implementation, such methods have been widely adopted for urban growth monitoring. Previous research has shown that built-up indices are sensitive to different factors related to image resolution, seasonality, and study area location. Also, most of them confuse urban surfaces with bare soil and barren land covers. By gathering the existing built-up indices, the aim of this paper is to discuss some of their advantages, difficulties, and limitations...

Inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD) in humans are characterized in part by aberrant CD4+ T cell responses. Currently, identification of foci of inflammation within the gut requires invasive procedures such as colonoscopy and biopsy. Molecular imaging with antibody fragment probes could be used to noninvasively monitor cell subsets causing intestinal inflammation. Here, GK1.5 cys-diabody (cDb), an anti-mouse CD4 antibody fragment derived from the GK1.5 hybridoma, was used as a positron emission tomography (PET) probe for CD4+ T cells in the dextran sulfate sodium (DSS) mouse model of IBD...

Global patterns of planktonic diversity are mainly determined by the dispersal of propagules with ocean currents. However, the role that abundance and body size play in determining spatial patterns of diversity remains unclear. Here we analyse spatial community structure - β-diversity - for several planktonic and nektonic organisms from prokaryotes to small mesopelagic fishes collected during the Malaspina 2010 Expedition. β-diversity was compared to surface ocean transit times derived from a global circulation model, revealing a significant negative relationship that is stronger than environmental differences...

BACKGROUND: Minimizing ischemia is paramount in the procurement of kidneys for transplantation. A fast cooling and expeditious removal is ideal to minimize damage from warm ischemia, however, since the removal of kidneys is delayed in cadaver donation until all other organs are harvested, the risk of kidney damage increases due to contact with the warmer soft body tissues. Surgical techniques that expedite organ retrieval were developed to avoid organ damage. METHODS: We test a modification of Thomas Starzl's improved technique for multi-organ harvesting by interposing an ice bag between the posterior aspect of the kidney and the psoas muscle in a randomized trial with 21 multi-organ cadaver donors...

Due to the heavy exploitation of holothurians over the last few decades, it is necessary to implement fishing regulations aimed at reversing this situation. Holothurians require specific regulations that take into account their biology and ecology. Their behavior to group and form patches as a strategy for feeding, defense and reproduction, makes them vulnerable to overfishing. The higher the population density, the higher the catchability coefficient, and because they are sedentary organisms, the catchability does not change significantly until the density is very low...

BACKGROUND: Traditional palliation for biventricular cyanotic congenital heart lesions often involves staging with systemic-to-pulmonary arterial shunts to secure pulmonary blood flow (PBF) in the newborn period prior to complete repair. However, shunts may lead to life-threatening events secondary to shunt occlusion or acute coronary steal. They may be associated with morbidity secondary to diastolic runoff, systemic steal and volume loading, and do not provide pulsatile flow which has the potential to promote pulmonary artery (PA) growth...
